Riyadh Local Customs: 72 reviews and 62 photos

Until the present time, the Saudi society consists of many TRIBES like Shammar, Anaza, Otayba and Motair just to name a few.

If you belong to a tribe means you're a pure Saudi (by birth and by blood) A non-Tribal are the ones who just migrated from other countries long time ago and settled after Hajj in Mecca and Medina.

Footnote:
It is very common to see someone tribal who cannot marry or deprived the right of marrying a non tribal individual.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
